Question about Whirlpool GD2SHGX Refrigerator

1 Answer

Bad Compressor, valve sticking in the compresser

We went on vacation for a week, came home and found our 5 year old side by side totally defrosted and spoiled everything in the frige as well as the freezer. Called the repairman and discovered that he had been so busy replacing the same part identical parts for whirlpool models (side by side) in the last couple of weeks. All of these models have just gotten over the 5 year warranty period. Our 5 year ended last month and the compressor went out this month. How convenience!!!!!!!!. The part costs $295.00 plus another $75.00 installation.

Contact Whirlpool Customer Care about this. There has been a serious problem with the Embraco compressors they are using.

Refrigerator is stuck in defrost mode.


If the compressor is running and not getting cold I would say that you have burnt out your compressor.
If it was stuck in defrost you wouldn't hear the frig running. When in defrost the compressor stops while the frig defrosts.

Kenmore Elite Trio Refrigerator not cooling


No, it is not a failed condenser. You need to see if the compressor is running though. When it runs you shaould have a fan in the freezer running, a fan underneath the fridge running, and the compressor should be running. I would be willing to bet that either the compressor is bad, or the start relay on the compressor.

Frig. is 5 years old - Not cooling - Buzzing clicking sound


Sounds like the compressor or start relay have went out.
For any recall info you would need to give the full model and serial to the Maytag.

Whirlpool side-by-side won't get cold, compressor clicks on-off.


Sounds like the start relay OR the compressor is no good. Have a service tech look at it, because there may be a capacitor in the circuit, which could be dangerous for you to fool with.

Freezer / Refrigerator not cooling


When the fans are running the compressor should also be running. If the compressor is hot but not running you have a compressor problem. If the compressor is running check for frost on back wall of the freezer compartment which would indicate a defrost system problem. At five years old have you cleaned the condenser where the heat is transferred to the outside air in the room?

Burning smell followed by failure to freeze/chill Whirlpool sbs


Sounds like it was just the Compressor relay failing. Sometimes when they fail(and they all do)-- they fail shorted......not open(the compressor just wouldnt work) and they melt down. Sometimes it ruins the terminals on the compressor. But it is a relatively simple repair and a 3yr old unit should be worth the repair.

Hotpoint SXS won't freeze


The fan in the freezer starts to run then shuts off repeatedly. If it does start and run it makes a howling sound like whoo-whoo-whoo. Is it the motor or some control?
